Combustion fan and circulating fan running and no heat

This unit has had two new boards put into it, honeywell brand boards. The unit started running the combustion and circulating fans and not producing heat. Two technicians have worked on it and it is still sitting there with the combustion and circulating fans running. have even put in a new ignitor and flame sensor. the loops check out fine, it is not the tstat. Can anyone help with this problem. I paid for expert help but this site will not honor it, wasted that money.

Check near the squirrel cage fan and see if there is a sail switch.  Sometimes these are used to confirm air movement prior to firing off the gas furnace.  It is simply a square piece of metal on a stick that attaches to a microswitch.  This switch is then depressed when the fan pushes the air (and the metal piece) allowing the burner to fire off.
Hope this helps.

Help- when heater gets to room temp. the circulating fan stops, but fire remains in combustion chamber and the blower motor or exhaust fan continues to run for hours. Toyostive laser 56MH thanks Jim...


Sir,

If there was a flame in the burner and no circulating fan running the stove would over heat in less than 5 minutes. It would show an EE 6 message. Are you sure there is a flame in the pot? The stove does have a safety feature that allows the combustion fan and circulating fan to run continuously in certain cases. This is a rather extreme case. In any event the circulating fan would be running at the same time the combustion fan was on. To get out of that mode turn the stove off and on again. Now you should be able to restart normally. Keep us posted,

Thanks,

Tom

Honeywell TH6000 series thermostat does not turn Fan on.


It's one of two issues; either the wiring to the thermostat is incorrect, or possibly you have an open ground. Depending on your system the wires at the thermostat end might have to pair up on one lead. go to where your unit is and look at the schematic for the control board, it will let you know what color you are looking for on the blower lead -- then make sure the corresponding color matches at the thermostat. Knowing the make and model of you unit and the board on it would allow me to be more specific, hope this helps you out some in the meantime.

the fan induction motor produces a vacuum, check of orofice on motor is plugged by pulling hose off switch end and putting in mouth while running and sucking, this will make a whining sound immediately if no restriction. the fans are controlled through the board by vac., swich, limit sitches, and timers in the board itself. maybe a bad ground on flame sensor.

Two and a half ton Goodman Package Unit


goodman boards really have to have a very good ground. make sure the ground wire is securely attached. also even though you say the limits are all good, you need to check the wiring that goes from one limit to the next. they should make a loop that goes from the plug at the control board to each limit and then back to the plug. take the plug loose and locate these 2 wires. ohm them out. if it is open, your problem is somewhere in the loop. the fact that the blower is running all the time tells me the board is not getting the signal it is looking for from the limits. I have seen some goodmans that have a rollout problem at the burner box and it melted the wiring to the limits on top of the box.it is hard to see so you have to look closely. also if this is the case, you need to have someone check the heat exchanger for a crack. the rollout usually does not happen till the fan starts blowing while the burners are on. if this is the case, you do not want to run the furnace for any reason as this is a carbon monoxide risk.

My apartment honeywell a/c is on full crank at 90 degrees on "heat". It doesn't feel warm at all, though it's been on for hours. I have a new filter in, as well. Also, "fan" and "auto" are other controls...


The "Fan on/auto" switch is desighned to give you the option of running the fan constantly, which continuosly filters the air in gives circulation.

It does not effect the heat or cool modes of the unit. All it does is effect the fan.

On the "Auto" setting, the fan will only come on when the unit is calling for heat, or cooling.

This will save a little bit of electricity, but will not continuosly circulate or filter the air.

What was the temperature inside tha apartment when you first set the T-stat on 90?
What is it now? if it is still climbing and it started out very low, it may just be working fine.

If not, you could have other problems, like low refridgerant (if it's a heat pump) or bad insulation on a very cold night or an undersized unit.

Has it been working properly before or have you just moved in/turned it on?

Need to know which terminals run what


Had similar problem, continuous fan, turn off power, then won't start up. Replaced thermostat, no change. The main controller board in the furnace went bad. What was weird was that it happened in the summer, while the heat was turned off. One day I noticed that the fan was running. The thermostat was in the off position, and I had to shut off power to the furnace to make it stop. I forgot about it till heating season came along and it wouldn't start up. The preliminary blower would start, the gas would click on, it would light, then quit. After tracing and checking the various safety switches, etc. it became apparrent the main board was bad. I found one on ebay, replaced it, [a simple job, unplug, a few screws, replug] and it's been working fine..good luck, John
